Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III will undergo an arthroscopic procedure to clean out his left knee that will sideline him for four to six weeks, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Williams will miss training camp and the preseason as he recovers. He’s expected to return early in the regular season, per the report.
